Situated overlooking New Plymouth’s beautiful, yet unforgiving coastline, this stylish gem needed a low maintenance, durable spouting system which could not only stand up against the coast’s harsh weather, but was also stylish, and complimented the contemporary aesthetic of the house.
William Johnson’s new residence built by Fabish and Jackson, was designed to reflect its surrounding environment and as such uses natural colourings throughout. Specifying designer uPVC spouting and downpipes in a copper hue from the Marley Stratus Design Series® accentuated this connection to the natural environment.
The secret to the Marley Stratus Design Series® besides its eye–catching looks is the advanced manufacturing process. Co-extrusion manufacturing combines an internal layer that minimises thermal movement with an outer layer that provides the premium aesthetic and durability. The result is durable colour with high UV and weather resistance – Marley Stratus Design Series® spouting and downpipes will never rust and is guaranteed for 15 years.
The Marley Stratus Design Series® is offered in Typhoon® spouting and 80mm downpipe with titanium and copper hybrid-metallic finishes available. For this project, the external brackets were chosen for ease of cleaning.
